While minimalism continues to resonate, there has also been an increase in the number of people looking to inject more colour and texture into their otherwise streamlined interiors. These days, homeowners are becoming more adventurous with colour and material selection.
Case in point: this family’s four-bedroom apartment in Singapore. Designed and renovated by The Scientist in three months, it has a clean white palette punctuated by delightful accents.
The 2,820sqft apartment has an abundance of windows that bring in plenty of natural light and offers a panoramic view of the city. Principal designer Alvin Ling and his team aimed to create a “castle in the sky”, taking advantage of the ample illumination to highlight various elements. The owners also enjoy hosting friends and family at home, so spacious dining and kitchen areas were among the key requirements.
The brief was for an effortlessly elegant interior, with entertaining as the focus; the interior is designed to generate a sense of wonder both inside and out.— Alvin Ling, principal designer of The Scientist
